Arbitration and mediation
Peter Brown has used alternate dispute resolution procedures as an important part of his legal practice in New York. When implemented properly, clients get private, efficient and final resolutions of their legal disputes while avoiding many of the costly procedures of federal or state litigation. For over a decade he has served as an arbitrator and mediator.
Mr. Brown currently serves on the Panel of Neutrals of the American Arbitration Association. In that capacity he has heard disputes involving patent licenses, software development agreements, music licensing, manufacturing defect claims, software ownership, breach of contract claims, trade secrets and employment related issues. Mr. Brown also serves as a mediator on the panel of the Southern District of New York.
